Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Commissioned by Imaginate
Age 7-12 years
What happens when your world is turned upside down and you have to find your own way? When triplet sisters are abandoned in a forest by their father, three resolutions are made - one walks one way to find purpose, another the opposite way to find adventure and the third stays right where she is. Over many years having grown forests, baked cakes, explored oceans, fought Vikings and built homes… the sisters, now women, meet back in the forest where it all started. A contemporary fairytale about determination and friendship that will encourage us to follow our dreams.
